NEWTON (AGES 8-12)

The Newton Troupe is for young people ages 8 to 12. The Troupe produces two original musicals a year. Physical and vocal techniques, character development and dance skills are taught in the rehearsal process.

The Newton Troupe meets on Mondays at the Parish of St. Paul in Newton Highlands, 3:30-5:45 pm, with two weekend rehearsals during each session. Opening performances are at Lasell College in January and May. The Troupe then tours each show throughout the community as a social service. Enrollment is in September and January. Fall 2020 Tuition Cost: $275 per session (includes a $50 non-refundable registration fee).

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Newton Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
